Daily Harvest Teams Up With Athletes To ‘Eat the Solution’

Daily Harvest is teaming up with athletes committed to encouraging people to “Eat the Solution” and consume more organic fruits and vegetables every day.

Blake Griffin of the Brooklyn Nets, Carmelo Anthony of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jared Goff of the Detroit Lions, Trea Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kemba Walker of the New York Knicks and other athletes have invested in Daily Harvest through Patricof Co., a private investment and advisory platform for professional athletes. The athletes were part of the company’s series D financing, which closed in Q1 2022.

“Joining forces with values-aligned world-class athletes allows us to amplify our mission,” said Rachel Drori, Daily Harvest founder and CEO. “Together, we can work towards a more sustainable food system for the benefit of human and planetary health.”

With most Americans not consuming enough fruits and vegetables, Daily Harvest and the athletes plan to magnify the connection between sustainability and nutrition. Through its mutual dedication to “Eat the Solution,” it will continue to encourage a more plant-based diet, which will in turn help lower our carbon footprint by 33 percent.

“Nutrition and healthy eating have been a huge part of my life ever since my mom had me taking fish oil and green juice every morning as a kid. Even though I hated it at the time, I am so thankful for the foundation that she laid for my personal nutrition journey,” said Blake Griffin. 

“Throughout my career, I’ve continued to evolve how best to take care of my body and discovering Daily Harvest was a game changer for me. With this investment, I look forward to working closely with Rachel and the Daily Harvest team to help educate the next generation on the impact – on our bodies and the planet – of eating more organic fruits and vegetables every day.”

Patricof Co. is a specialized private investment platform designed to meet the business needs and opportunities of professional athletes. It optimizes athletes’ direct private investment strategy through a combination of personalized services and a proprietary co-investment process. The practice creates an investing advantage, allowing P/Co to secure allocations in highly competitive, blue-chip growth and private equity and real estate investment opportunities.

Daily Harvest is reimagining how food can nourish both humanity and the planet by making it easy to eat more real, unrefined fruits and vegetables. Through a combination of data science and a future-focused supply chain, Daily Harvest co-creates food with its community and brings it to market. Launched in 2016 by Rachel Drori, Daily Harvest works with farmers to support biodiversity and organic farming practices for a regenerative future.
